Stencil Street Art Masterclass : Paul Nicholson

"This whole day course will enable participants to develop their ideas by creating stencilled images based on drawings, paintings or photographs. Starting with some basic designs, it is intended that the group will go on to design multi-layered stencil art using craft knives and water-based aerosol paints. The spray paint is suitable for indoor use and all equipment will be provided."
